Picked up a Holiday Special Fett, the only non-chase/ limited kub I was missing. Since I bought the Droids and vintage versions before my complete-ist aspirations set in, I had to get the rest of the Fett's piecemeal. It was pretty fun to track them all down from far-flung locations, but I shudder to think how much I could've saved if I had just bought the set.   ::)

That Gonk looks great!

Got my latest arrival a few days ago and am finally getting around to pictures.   8)

Expensive as he was, I have no buyer's remorse over this one.  He looks amazing in and out of the AT-ST.  Now I just need to figure out a way to display these Deluxe sets.

Got my Parco Gray-Haired Obi-Wan as well, though I haven't freed him from his plastic prison yet.  Not as different from the regular release as I had hoped, but a must have for me.  This is one of my favorite Kenner vintage variations.

This was a must-have for me too, but I did have a minor gripe: For some reason, they used a shade of grey for the hair that's almost the exact value/tone as his skin color. It makes his facial hair and eyebrows invisible! They accurately show this on the card art Ben, so I guess it's intentional. What's odd is that the whites of the figures eyes are also grey, leading me to believe that they haphazardly switched white to grey on some template and forgot about the eyes  ::).

I hadn't noticed the eyes, but will have to look for that.  I'm curious to see how different they look side by side...

Picked up a red Bib- As far as the dx chases go, he remains somewhat reasonably priced on occasion.

Nice score!  How much did you get him for?

Picked up a carded Jorg Sacul.  Had a loose one that I got from Dan and now I have the carded version.  So, if anyone's interested in the loose one, shoot me a PM.

Did you you pick up the one on ebay a few days ago for approximately $80? I saw that and thought that was a good buy.

Yep, that was the one.  Came out to $99 with shipping, but that also included an acrylic case (according to the auction details).  If I take into consideration that an Oscar case would have cost me $20 with shipping, that means I got the figure for about $80 shipped.  I'm happy with that.

Also ended up picking up the carded GSX Indiana Jones exclusive figure (no watch though).  So now I'm only down to needing the carded Series 3 figures to complete my carded collection.
